The Eurozone: Corporate briefing
Whilst we hope that continuing efforts to hold the eurozone together will succeed, there remains a real risk that one or more weaker Member States may be forced (or decide) to leave the eurozone. This briefing note considers various issues for businesses to consider in this context.
For the purposes of this briefing, we do not consider a full break-up of the euro and we assume that the euro will continue as a lawful currency. The effects highlighted in this briefing do not comprise an exhaustive list of all potential issues but highlight key commercial or legal issues.
